A pair of early 20th century buildings in Westlake could make way for a new multifamily residential development, according to an application submitted yesterday to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The proposed development, which would replace a duplex and a fourplex at 2716-2724 W. James M. Wood Boulevard, calls for the construction of a six-story edifice featuring 58 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above parking for 29 vehicles.

Requested entitlements for the project include Tier III Transit Oriented Communities incentives, permitting relief from certain zoning regulations in exchange for setting aside eight apartments as deed-restricted affordable housing.

A rendering of the project, which is designed by KSK Design, depicts a contemporary low-rise building.

City records list the project applicant as Ravivo Kaofman through the Woodland Hills-based entity RK Development, LLC.

The development site is located two blocks east of a six-story, 193-unit mixed-use complex now rising at the intersection of James M. Wood and Vermont Avenue.
